Golden Valley Team


Susan Maki

Susan has owned MPLS Rue 48 Salon for 9 years.   Her goal was to develop a salon atmosphere with sustainability and a relaxed environment for both guests and stylists.  Her passion and professionalism in this industry has brought her to wanting to expand the original “Rue 48 Salon”, with her business partner, Rebecca to both Golden Valley and Duluth.   Duluth and Golden Valley locations have a special connection to her.  

Personal Interests

Susan lives and is active in the Golden Valley Community with her 2 kids for the last 18 years, prior to Golden Valley she was raised in the Northland where she shares her time at her condo in Duluth.  Even though she traveling throughout the 3 locations, she primarily does hair in Golden Valley and Duluth.


Rebecca is thrilled to be joining the Rue 48 team, leveraging her many talents and experiences in her roles as Owner, Manager and Stylist for Rue 48 Salons. Rebecca is a graduate of the Aveda Institute. She has worked behind the chair as a Master Stylist, and as a Stylist Educator and Trainer for more than twenty-five years.

As her career advanced, Rebecca developed a passion for the art of hair color and a love for teaching. This led her to a position with Aveda, where she served as Regional Hair Color Educator for thirteen years. Rebecca traveled the upper Midwest where she taught Stylists and mentored Stylist Educators in their own salons. Rebecca’s philosophy is that the teacher is also the student. She appreciates that through educating others, she continues to stretch her own skill-set and grow her artistry, and she gains satisfaction from sharing this insight with other Stylists.
